Take a walk around the grounds of Beauly Priory, the ruins of a Valliscaulian monastic community founded in 1230. Information boards throughout the property tell you about its history, including its period as a Cromwell fort in 1650. Several notable figures have visited the priory through history, including Mary Queen of Scots during her travels in the Highlands. John Keats was inspired to pen the poem "On Some Skulls in Beauley Abbey" near Inverness with his friend, Charles Brown, when he visited in summer of 1818.
